We have had a blip with our computer so I haven't been able to update the blog.
Half term started last Friday which always signals a busy week ahead!! Everybody arrives from far off places, to be enchanted with our Northumberland coastline. Saying that, I had the day off on Saturday and spent a day with "the girls" as we like to call ourselves, at Floors Castle. We had a very cold day but refreshments were excellent and the company great! We managed to watch some of the locals compete some of which did really well.Charlotte Swearman rode two horses clear x country and had very good dressage tests, not bad having just come back from exams and not having ridden for three weeks. Well done!
Rachel Smith,another Northumbrian girl finished a very good 5th in her section, we watched her faultless show jumping round.She hit the local headlines a couple of weeks ago after qualifying for a dressage competition. It's great to see local people doing well.
Also at this time of the year "the birders" are out in force! We are so lucky having the Farne Islands accessible from the harbour.People travel miles just to visit this spectacular sight of craggy rocks littered with all species of birds and also the grey seal colony.
Have to go cook tea now, more news soon.
